    Think HQ and Department of Education launch teacher recruitment campaign

    Think HQ and the Victorian Department of Education have launched the 'Teach the Future' campaign – aimed at driving teacher recruitment.

    The campaign, which debuted on Australian TV screens, features different scenarios where teachers are making a difference in their students’ lives. It includes a 30’ edit across TV and cinema, a 15’ edit on TV and video on demand, 6-15’ edits airing on social channels, and radio, digital, press, OOH, print collateral and event branding.

    Teach the Future appeals to potential teachers by showing a career full of pride and making a difference in the lives of future leaders, as well as good wages and steady career progression.

    The campaign has kicked off with a focus on school leavers, undergraduates, recent graduates and their influencers, directing them to a website to learn more about a teaching career.

    Campaign effectiveness will be measured through a combination of the percentagereach of the target audience, website hits, overall campaign feedback.
